I'm just mad they skipped a bunch of my favorite, and funny captures. The flashbacks didn't make up for it at all. I understand why they did that, but I just wish they could make a 24 episode 2 season to put all the stuff in.

Hmmm while the OP was good, it didn't feel like it was on the same level as the first & second season's. Now, It's a good start to Goddesses.

That sums up how I felt about the episode

Episode 1:

I had to collect my thoughts for a while after watching this...

My impression from this first episode was that they are seriously trying to condense the whole Goddesses Arc into 12 episodes

Warning to all season 3 watchers: if you have not watched all the OVAs (the band club and Tenri arc one) and manga you will be somewhat confused by the introduction of the new characters and events that they flashed through.

My worst fears were confirmed, they have skipped so many arcs (including Yui's and Tsukiyo's) just to go straight to the Goddess Arc.

My expectations for this have been lowered somewhat.

While I am disappointed that they skipped so much, I can understand it.

TV audience demands a different pacing than Manga. What works really well in one doesn't always work as well for the other.

The Goddess arc is where things really heat up. We get major enemies and more clear cut goals and probably the most important part is "Girls who remember", which gives the audience a much stronger investment in characters.

I don't know what the ratings were for the first two seasons but I would be willing to bet this one will do better simply because it's an arc that favors the Television medium better.

the conquests!!! ah well, hoping for ova's for them. I noticed a difference in the anime as well at the end scene.
Opening song is good as usual.

I can agree with Greylurker's post but the problem I can see happening is that because we skipped so much as seen in this episode, I fear that people will just not be able to connect with characters like Tenri, Yui, and Tsukiyo because their arcs were basically skipped (Tenri's arc was an OVA so I consider that skipped for those watching on CR)

We don't know how the characters act and think because their arcs were skipped over in place of a quick flashback.

With most likely12 episodes and


If this is 2 cour, I'll change my opinion but as of this point, I'm only optimistic at best.

For everyone complaining that they skipped so much:

Yeah, it really, really sucks that they skipped Tsukiyo and Yui's arcs. I'd have loved to see them plus all the other arcs everyone's mentioned, too.

But at least they didn't replace them with Mio and Kusunoki respectively. Cuz that could have been done, (and fairly easily) too. And it would have royally sucked.

So, mostly, I'm just glad they kept (most) of the the characters they needed for this story.

I don't think connecting with the characters is as much a problem as much as it is the sudden change in direction. I watched this knowing there were OVAs I haven't seen, and that was what I found the most problematic from not watching them. I will now, and even read the portion of the manga that was skipped in the anime, but I just feel more like I'm missing out on conquests more than plot development since it was somewhat explained in this first episode anyway.

REGARDLESS

I am happy TWGOK is back, I really enjoy this series. Also, Kanon was just so adorable when confronting Keima. Seires makes me confused on who to ship with him.

No, I don't think they would actually dare change the plot itself by doing things like that. They will rush and condense but they won't pull an original ending or something like the first FMA anime did when the FMA manga was still ongoing.

I'm happy we got the third season, I think the new OP will grow on me (though the OP itself kind of ruins the mystery of the arc), but I still go into this show with unease.

Where are half these characters coming from and where can I watch them. Like the doll girl and tenri? Other than that liking this arc so far, if it keeps going like this it may be my favorite arc by the end of the season.

Tsukiyo's (doll girl in flashback) arc is manga only it seems as is Yui's (girl in kimono) and evey other girl that was in the flashback.
Tenri's arc was done in a 2 episode OVA last year.
